About Baldemar

Image of Baldemar Lopez and Family

Born in Elgin and raised by a single mother who worked two jobs to make a better life for her children, Baldemar learned early on the value of hard work and education. Baldemar attended U-46 schools and graduated from Elgin Community College where he served as the Student Trustee. He received his Bachelor of Arts from the University of Illinois (Chicago) then, on to the University of Denver Law School where he earned a law degree.

After earning his law degree, Baldemar could have settled in any city in the nation but chose to return to the area to give back to the community that gave so much to him and now, he and his wife Violeta, are raising their two daughters here.

As a small business owner, homeowner, husband and father, Baldemar knows firsthand the struggles that most working families face. Through his work in government, legal and non-profits, he spent most of his professional life advocating for working families.

“My mother taught my sister and I that working hard would create opportunities that she never had. I’m running for City Council to make sure Elgin continues to offer our children the same chance at success I had.”   - Baldemar Lopez
